Outputs consist of two pair of stereo Euroblock connectors and two channels of mono outputs. RCA and optical digital outputs are also available for recording.
The IMX644 will also compliment the successful Installation Series loudspeakers and have been designed for seamless compatibility with all 26 IS speakers.
“The addition of the IMX644 rack mount mixer to our full line of sound reinforcement products provides contractors and integrators with a Yamaha solution for small to medium sized installs like corporate board rooms and at a very moderate price point,” states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems. “With the current economic climate, our goal is to continue to provide our customers with even better cost-effective solutions.”
The IMX 644 mixer is very intuitive for inexperienced operators to use, and includes many advanced features easily accessed from a computer running IMX644 Manager Software when connected to the mixer via its USB port.
Software features include a feedback suppressor and automatic ducking on all mono inputs, six-band parametric EQ, and digital delay and output balance on all outputs.
Complete configurations can be saved to any one of 16 instantly-recalled scenes. GPI inputs and outputs are provided as well as an RS232-C remote connection which allows remote control via third party systems such as AMX or Crestron.
The IMX644 rack mount mixer has an MSRP of $2,099.
